User’s Manual
Intel Pentium 4 LGA775 Processor Thermal Solutions
As processor technology pushes to faster speeds and higher performance, thermal
management becomes increasingly crucial when building computer systems. Maintaining
the proper thermal environment is key to reliable, long-term system operation. The overall
goal in providing the proper thermal environment is keeping the processor below its
specified maximum case temperature. Heatsinks induce improved processor heat dissipation
through increased surface area and concentrated airflow from attached fans. In addition,
interface materials allow effective transfers of heat from the processor to the heatsink. For
optimum heat transfer, Intel recommends the use of thermal grease and mounting clips to
attach the heatsink to the processor.
When selecting a thermal solution for your system, please refer to the website below for
collection of heatsinks evaluated and recommended by Intel for use with Intel processors.
Note, those heatsinks are recommended for maintaining the specified Maximum T case
requirement. In addition, this collection is not intended to be a comprehensive listing of all
heatsinks that support Intel processors.

Introduction of PT88BSPRO Motherboard
Thank you for purchasing the PT88BSPRO which provide extremely performance
and meet future specification demand.
PT88BSPRO series motherboards are adopted with advanced technologies to deliver the
extremely performance for Intel Pentium 4 Northwood/ Hyper-Threading/ Prescott LGA775
processors. The motherboard also feature AGP 8X/ PCI-Express x4 mode , Serial ATA RAID0, 1,
USB 2.0 as well as 6-channel audio which are based on the advanced VIA PT880PRO chipset
with FSB 800MHz and DDR400 Memory clock support. The PT88BSPRO also supports Dual
channel DDR400 Memory clock. Now we could know more details by reading the features of
motherboards below.
1-1 Feature of motherboard
PT88BSPRO motherboard is designed for Intel Pentium 4 LGA775 533MHz/ 800MHz Front
Side Bus Frequency CPUs and the memory size expandable to 4.0GB.
By using VIA PT880PRO chipset which provides 800/533MHz Front Side Bus frequency and
Dual channel DDR266/333/400 SDRAM support as a obvious further step to the next generation
of 533/800MHz processors. These motherboards also offered ULTRA ATA 133 and Serial ATA
RAID 0, 1 functions to provide speedier HDD throughout that boosts overall system
performance.
Integrated AC’97 CODEC audio on system supports 8-channel speaker for 3D Surround Effect
which is fully compatible with Sound Blaster Pro that gives you the best sound quality and
compatibility. AGP 8X slot enables more complex models and detailed textures with AGP 8X
graphic accelerators which creates richer and more lifelike virtual environments.
The unique VIA Universal Graphics Interface allows connection of both AGP and PCI Express
graphics cards on the same motherboard, truly bridging the gap between the two standards.
Furthermore, users can enable advanced VIA DualGFX Express technology by running AGP and
PCI Express graphics cards simultaneously, opening up a new expanse of user options.
The PT88BSPRO used VIA VT6103 LAN PHY supports 10/100Mbps data transfer rate full
duplex, half duplex operation. USB control as well as capability of expanding to 8 USB function
ports support USB2.0/1.1 Devices.
Built-in hardware monitor function will monitor and protect your computer which is the special
design in hardware for protecting Pentium 4 CPU from burned, and will shutdown power supply
automatically when CPU is overheated or the CPU cooling fan is not working.
Some special features--- CPU Thermal Throttling/ CPU Vcore 7-shift/ CPU Smart Fan in this
motherboard for power user to use the over-clocking function more flexible. For detail description
please read next section.
1
1-1.1 Special Features of motherboard
CPU Thermal Throttling Technology---(The CPU Overheat Protection Technology)
To prevent the increasing heat from damage of CPU or accidental shutdown while at high
workload, the CPU Thermal Throttling Technology will force CPU to enter partially idle mode
from 87.5% to 12.5% according to preset CPU operating temperature in BIOS (from 40℃ to 90
℃). When the system senses the CPU operating temperature reaching the preset value, the CPU
operating bandwidth will be decreased to the preset idle percentage to cool down the processor.
When at throttling mode the beeper sound can be optionally selected to indicate it is in working.
( for detail operating please read Section 3-11 Bi-turbo Configuration)
CPU Smart Fan---( The Noise Management System )
It’s never been a good idea to gain the performance of your system by sacrificing its acoustics.
CPU Smart Fan Noise Management System is the answer to control the noise level needed for
now-a-day’s high performance computing system. The system will automatically increase the fan
speed when CPU operating loading is high, after the CPU is in normal operating condition, the
system will low down the fan speed for the silent operating environment. The system can provide
the much longer life cycle for both CPU and the system fans for game use and business
requirements.
CPU Vcore 7-Shift--- ( Shift to Higher Performance )
The CPU voltage can be adjusted up by 7 steps for the precisely over-clocking of extra
demanding computing performance.

About INTEL PENTIUM 4 775PIN CPU
This motherboard provides a 775-pin surface mount, LGA775 Land Grid Array socket, referred to
as the LGA775 socket supports Intel Pentium 4 processor in the 775 Pin package utilizes
Flip-Chip Land Grid Array (FC-LGA4) package technology.
The CPU that comes with the motherboard should have a cooling FAN attached to prevent
overheating. If this is not the case, then purchase a correct cooling FAN before you turn on your
system.
WARNING!
Be sure that there is sufficient air circulation across the processor’s heatsink
and CPU cooling FAN is working correctly, otherwise it may cause the
processor and motherboard overheat and damage, you may install an auxiliary
cooling FAN, if necessary.
To install a CPU, first turn off your system and remove its cover. Locate the LGA775 socket
and open it by first pulling the level sideways away from the socket then upward to a 90-degree
angle. Insert the CPU with the correct orientation as shown below. The notched corner should
LGA 775
point toward the end of the level. Because the CPU has a corner pin for two of the four corners,
the CPU will only fit in the orientation as shown.
Colden
CPU LGA 775 Socket
When you put the CPU into the LGA775 socket. No force require to insert of the CPU, then
press the level to Locate position slightly without any extra force.

Chapter 3
Introducing BIOS Settings
The BIOS is a program located on a Flash Memory of the motherboard. Using this program as a
bridge between motherboard and operating system. When the computer starting to work, the
BIOS program gain control. The BIOS first operates an auto-diagnostic test called POST (power
on self test) for all the necessary hardware, it detects the entire hardware device and configures the
parameters of the hardware synchronization. Only when these tasks are completed done it gives
up control of the computer to operating system (OS). Since the BIOS is the only channel for
hardware and software to communicate, it is the key factor for system stability, and in ensuring
that your system performance as its best.
In the BIOS Setup main menu of Figure 3-1, you can see several options. We will explain these
options step by step in the following pages of this chapter, but let us first see a short description of
the function keys you may use here:

password. Type the password again and press <Enter>. You may also press <Esc> to abort the
selection and not enter a password.
To disable a password, just press <Enter> when you are prompted to enter the password. A
message will confirm that the password will be disabled. Once the password is disabled, the system
will boot and you can enter Setup freely.
PASSWORD DISABLED.
When a password has been enabled, you will be prompted to enter it every time you try to enter
Setup. This prevents an unauthorized person from changing any part of your system configuration.
Additionally, when a password is enabled, you can also require the BIOS to request a password every
time your system is rebooted. This would prevent unauthorized use of your computer.
You determine when the password is required within the BIOS Features Setup Menu and its Security
option. If the Security option is set to “System”, the password will be required both at boot and at
entry to Setup. If set to “Setup”, prompting only occurs when trying to enter Setup.
